    Surface Laptop 3 Screen Freezing When Untouched


    My laptop is brand new about 2 days after having it, it would, and still, freezes when it is untouched for anywhere between 15 and 180 seconds. The PC will lock up and not respond to anything. It will just show the screen that it had frozen on and not do anything else until I manually restart it. The only button that I have noticed that works when it is frozen is the keyboard back-light toggle button. One quick temporary solution that I found prevented the PC from freezing was playing something such as a song or youtube video in the background. I have already troubleshooted my PC several times in several ways and have even resorted to factory resetting it. This did nothing and the problem still persists. My PC model is: 13.5" Platinum Surface Laptop 3 Intel Core i5 8 GB RAM 128 GB SSD. I have tried toggling multiple settings but have had no luck.

    Surface Laptop 3 with external monitor

    Hi All,

    Has anyone come across an issue with an external monitor blacking out while connected to a Surface Laptop 3? I have the laptop connected to a widescreen laptop with the Surface Dock. Both work fine however, once every hour or so the external monitor blacks out and comes back.

    I've completed the following:

    • Updated laptop drivers and firmware
      • Updated monitor drivers
      • Swapped out monitor
    [/LIST]
